Some staples in a real food diet can be prohibitively expensive.
One thing I like to have on hand is coconut oil. It’s a much healthier oil to bake with than vegetable or canola oil. A 14 ounce container of Whole Foods’ store brand coconut oil costs $6.99, and it doesn’t last very long around here with the amount of baking I do. I’m always looking out for a good deal on coconut oil, and I’ve found that I can sometimes get a good deal online. Amazon occasionally offers a nicely discounted price on Nutiva coconut oil, and I’ve recently come across some vitamin websites that are offering group coupons or discounts to new customers.
Check out Vitacost for a great deal on coconut oil going on now. If you are a new customer, they are offering a $10 credit off your first order. In addition, they will provide free shipping on any Vitacost brand order over $20 through March 19, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. EST. Their coconut oil is on sale for $19.95 for 54 ounces. This is a huge container! Just add another small Vitacost item to your cart to get the total over $20, and with the $10 new customer credit you’ll get both items for less than $11 shipped. Other items to check out at Vitacost are Bob’s Red Mill products, Kind Bars, and Larabars.
